Tagliatelle al Ragu

Cowbridge Kitchen

Ragu is a meat based pasta sauce, often made with minced Beef and it is used to make Tagliatelle al Ragù is sometimes called Bolognese or Spaghetti Bolognese, an Italian pasta in a Ragu sauce.

This recipe for Tagliatelle al Ragu It is pretty much the same recipe for Spaghetti Bolognese it is just that one uses Tagliatelle and the other uses Spaghetti.

I like to serve Tagliatelle al Ragu and Spaghetti Bolognese with Cheesy Garlic bread made with Ciabatta bread.

The Ragu sauce is best served over the top of a plate of pasta such as Spaghetti or Tagliatelle then topped with a hard Italian Cheese..
